Favorite day in Crete!
Excellent private day trip with Yanni as our guide! He brought us to Knossos in perfect timing before the big buses arrived, then whisked us to a gorgeous winery for private tour and tasting, and finished off with a truly delicious meal at a family-run taverna in Archanes village on the way back to Heraklion. Thanks for a great day, Yanni!!

Great choice for a shore excursion
Great experience. Good communication, prompt pick up. Our guide got us to the palace before the huge lines that form later in the day. We were able to tailor our specific route. The wine tasting was informative and enjoyable. Lunch was so wonderful!

Soaking up local culture in Crete
Great private tour and visit of a Titakis winery. We sampled 5 different local wine varieties. The lunch was also delicious - 4 traditional courses at a small restaurant in Arcanes village.
